Individual Careers Guidance
At Lisnagarvey High School we offer a child centred approach to Careers Education Information Advice
and Guidance. In Year 10 students benefit from one to one interviews with form tutors, CEIAG teachers
and the DEL Careers Advisor to aid the process of selecting their GCSE choices.
In Year 12 students take part in an interview with the Careers Advisor. During this time, students
devise a Careers Guidance Action Plan. Students then have a follow-up interview to check their progress
and to get guidance on the next stage of their career planning.
The DEL Careers Advisor is present at all parents evenings for Years 10, 12, 13 & 14.
Education Industry Links
Our aim is to ensure that students are knowledgeable about the careers available to them. We work
closely within the Lisburn Area Learning Community Careers Sub–Group as well as the Lisburn Business
Education Partnership to ensure all pupils benefit from a range of opportunities to get experience of
industries. We also have close links with employers who regularly deliver information to students.
Individual subject areas provide opportunities for industry visits.
Experience of Work
Students have the opportunity to complete work experience placements in Year 11 & 13. Work experience
is a valuable opportunity for students to investigate the suitability of particular careers for them.
